RUGBY – 14628
Safe - 12-5-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Rugby. My animal id is #14628. I am a male red brown dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 26-Nov-2017.
Rugby is at risk due to behavior, Experience no young children determination. Rugby has extreme reactivity towards other dogs and should have a home that is prepared to manage that behavior. There are no medical concerns for Rugby at this time.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Our little player has a wrinkled forehead, and I’ve never met a wrinkle I don’t want to smooth away. Rugby is no exception, so when he came into my lap, I massaged, I petted, I kissed, but the little forehead wrinkles haven’t melted away yet. Rugby is a little dude whose tail never stops wagging even while we walk to the park. He pulls slightly on leash but is easily manageable and responsive to correction, and potties en route. His clean caramel coat and perfect weight reflect a home attentive to his needs before he joined us. Off leash, Rugby comes when I call him, shows off his sit, keeps wagging his tail and takes treats gently. He’s a low key boy, waiting for an invitation to play tug, or join me on the bench, or put his head in my lap. Such good manners!! He comes when I call him, his tail gently wagging. Little Rugby was found tied up outside a police station. They brought him to us so that we could find him a new home. I voted him MVP and I know you’ll do the same. Ask to meet him today.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 59.5 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 3. Yellow
